direct result of nearly four years of reckless spending. forget about bush. this is the obama economy. 8.1% unemployment. $6 terrell in new obama debt. 1 in 6 americans currently live in poverty in this country. 46 million americans are in need of food stamps. fewer americans are working today than when the president took office in january of '09. gas prices have soared by over 100% during his tenure. today we learn that the average household income dropped by more than 8% in the less than four years president obama's been in office. what's the president doing about all that? well, he's, of course, campaigning out there all over the country. earlier today he stopped by kent state university in ohio, a place he visited back in 2008. let's take a walk down memory lane and see what he said. >> when bill clinton was president the average family income went up $7500. $7500. since george bush has been president, it's gone down $2,000. think about that. that's a $9500 swing. $9500. that's money out of your pocket. that's money going out of this country because we're borrowing it from china t

rate in the country. barack obama won here comfortably four years ago. this time it will be closer. >> you're going to have a big choice to make, nevada. and it's not just choice between two candidates or two political parties. it's a choice between two different paths for this country. >> this is the other path. mitt romney, the businessman turned politician who is promising to turn the economy around slipped a little in the polls but it's still too close to call. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward to america we can choose and the people are going to have to make a choice. >> more money is being spent on this election than ever before. who wins depends on how people vote in a handful of swing states and in a few areas of those states so all the money is being spent on bombarding the undecided with tv ads and phone calls. >> this is from the obama campaign. i'm a volunteer. >> the democrats have a well-oiled campaign machine. >> we are outnumbering republicans with new voter registrations. we have volunteers in here every single day m

size up the candidates side by side. they've watched the incumbent for four years. barack obama came into office promising to lead a turnaround. but economy growth has been sluggish. still, he leads in a number of polls, but only just. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit, is by burdening middle-class families. now, that's not my analysis. >> reporter: mitt romney has tried to make the case that his business experience prepares him to lead a recovery. but his support slipped after he was caught on video making dismissive remarks about almost half the american electorate. he said his job is not to worry about the 47% of them who pay no income taxes and are dependent on government. so romney went on the offensive. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government, would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> reporter: veteran journalist jim lehrer moderated the d

the republican column -- as we know president obama won four years ago here. if he can't do that, it's going to be very tough. these are states that romney has to flip back to the republican column if he wants to be elected president. >> jim, one of the things i noticed, too, that's different here, virginia's unemployment rate is much lower than the national average. you're talking about a national average of over more than 8%, virginia hovering in the 5% range or so. is his message of creating more jobs. is that really going to resonate in virginia? >> reporter: that is why i think, suzanne, we heard him talking about defense jobs. as he was putting it here a few moments ago, if the sequestration cuts happen -- you hear it here in the local media. while the economy is doing quite well, better than the national average. we heard the governor of this state, bob mcdonnell, tout this state's economy even at the republican convention, there are worries about defense cuts and what that would mean to the local economy. that's why i think you heard mitt romney tailoring his message to that pa

and that gives you a better sense which has obama up about four. even if you take claims at face value, jon, if he is up by eight or 11 points in any of these polls, even if you were to take out the possibility of oversampling, which i don't think is happening and i could explain that later, necessarily, the, he is still up by so much even if they were oversampling he is still ahead. he is still ahead by four or five points. it will not benefit the republicans to pretend this is just all the pollsters helping obama. jon: well, judy, the one of the points republicans like to make that there was a 7 percentage point advantage among democratic voters who turned out in 2008. so if the pollsters use that model, if they weight all of their polls by democrats plus seven, those were the numbers, four years ago, they're saying it is not accurate because you're not going to get the same kind of democratic enthusiasm and democratic turnout in 2012 that you had in 2008 when barack obama was a new, unknown and very exciting contender. >> well that is the key question and that does account for

four more years of obama, if obamacare is not repealed we'll have story after story of that one. >> senator rubio is here shadowing the president. he told me he agrees with governor chris christie that romney is a strong debate torso they're still not low -- strong debater, so they are still not lowering the expectation. the message is simple: the country can't afford four more months, let alone four more years. >> bret: ed henry traveling with the president in las vegas. thank you. one thing you can just about guarantee to hear wednesday night here is reference to mitt romney's comment on that videotape about the now infamous 47%. chief political correspondent carl cameron has that story and the rest of the debate prep from here in denver. >> day before facing off with president obama in denver, romney attended staff meetings and stepped out for mexican fast food with the ohio senator rob portman, the man playing the president in the mock debate rehearsals. his wife ann hit the trail in his stead. >> we're focused and i can't wait for the contrast we're going to hear tomorrow.

obama has to tell us why he earned four more years. he failed on everything on the economy. i disagree with everyone here. i don't think it's romney's to win. he has to win tonight. >> bob: so you want to give a guy a job you don't know anything about. >> kimberly: we gave somebody a job four years ago we didn't know anything about. >> andrea: on medicare, romney has the easiest answer in the world. president obama and democrats gutted half a trillion dollars. it's done. law of the land. >> bob: what are you goin you gg to do down there? >> andrea: he is a fixer. all he has to do is -- all the plans, bob, you haven't had the time to read or take time to read. i have one more thought. thank god you are not monitoring the debate. >> bob: if you read it through, tell me what his medicare plan is? >> kimberly: we don't have an hour-and-a-half. >> bob: romney skate in, just fine. >> greg: nobody is going to get my famous banana bread if we keep up with this attitude. andrea is back later for more coverage of the debate. up next, more on the tape of president obama that media is trying to bu
